Application Specific Integrated Circuits or ASICs are non-standard integrated circuits that are designed for a specific use or application. Here a complete system or product is integrated onto a chip and virtually no other components are required. Its function cannot be changed to anything else because its circuitry is made up of permanently connected in silicon. The cost of designing an ASIC is very high, NRE (Non-Recurring Engineering) cost, and therefore they tend to be reserved for high volume products. But ASICs can be very cost effective for many applications where they are produced in large scale.
